As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve been decluttering the house, from top to bottom, and I’ve even shared ten decluttering tips that have worked for me. Much of my inspiration has come from Flylady, who has been instrumental in helping me to stop being such a perfectionist. Much of my decluttering has been done in small chunks of time – 15 minutes here, 10 minutes there, even 5 minutes just to clean out one file in my filing cabinet. But all of those small chunks of time have added up – here’s just a sampling of the things I have removed from our house:
What’s really astonishing is that we’re not pack rats, so there isn’t an overwhelming amount of clutter. But when I delve below the surface, I find that there are lots of things I can happily live without. I love reorganizing as I purge, and making the house more functional. It’s easier to find what’s left, and it looks so much nicer!
What have you gotten rid of lately?
